More Messages to the Future
I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.
Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,
Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
Dear You Tomorrow,
What we failed to do, at least early on, was to see how important it was to put those solutions together. To combine into a way forward.
Dear Abigail and Olivia,
What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?
To My Future Self,
This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
I want you to be prepared for the world that the generations before you are creating for you. I love you Lucienne, and I will not give up. I will push you and teach you not to give up, either, even if others around you do.
Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,
How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?
Don’t use plastic straws!
I promise to take shorter showers.
Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.
I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
